Fall photos are my favorite! And fall is, personally, my favorite time of the year!

Mostly because I love the cute fall fashion; scarves, bold colors, cute booties and boots and little kids in sweaters make my heart stop!!! Ahh! The Olson Family picked the perfect outfits for fall photos. And they go so well with the colors of fall!

Shaver Lake is a special place for this family to spend weekends away and holidays, so it was only fitting that we did their fall family photos there too!

Choosing outfits for fall photos can be stressful.

But don’t let those thoughts overwhelm you; start by planning the easiest family members outfits first. Sometimes this can be the kiddos, or sometimes it’s mom who is a bit more picky with what she wears.

Once you decide what to wear for your fall family photos, it’s time to plan the rest of the families outfits.

If you’re in a solid color, think about complimentary colors. You may even be able to find a patterned shirt or dress to go with the solid colors like Melissa did with her son’s shirt and sweater.

And don’t be afraid of patterns, especially for fall. Fall is filled with lovely sunlight, vibrant colors and so much warmth. Embrace that with your outfit choices and express your style with what you wear.
